Thieves! – Ep65

Thick as thieves? You goddam betcha!

A thief in the group can be a blessing and a curse. No other class in Dungeons & Dragons elicits the same level of uneasiness among the group. A thief can get you in a door or find a deadly trap on a treasure chest, but they also are shady bastards that try to keep all the best treasure for themselves and will shank you if they think they could get away with it.


We take an intimate look at this iconic character class. How it has changed over the editions of the game and how it is still causing party woes.
